Default OH GOD NOOOOO

Ok today I was pulling into work and something really unnerving happened. When I let off the brake and the engine started to take the car I felt a little shudder, almost like the motor was going to quit. I't all fine when I give it gas but when it'* just idling along it will kindof shudder a little bit. And on top of that when I put in park I hear a leaf-blower like noise but when I put it in gear it stops.

Please help I'm worried about this car.

How many miles does it have and what recent maintenance have you done to it?

Check the vaccume line under the supercharger snout. Make sure the T didnt pop off the nipple.

28,500 miles. Not so much leaf blower noise as much as small engine noise. I have changed the oil, put in an intense fenderwell intake kit, headlights, thats about it. I'm going outside to check on what you just said 8 ball.

oh I just checked on that 8-ball and everything was fine. I'm pretty sure its the transmission but I am still clueless of what is going on in there.

Any SES lights or codes? It really sounds like a Vac line popped. Does it make the noise if you rev the car in Neutral or park?

yeah it gets faster and slower as you rev it. Soon as we get the warrantee stuff sent in we can take it to the dealer and hope they don't just say its fine and me end up paying for a real diagnostic. No check engine light, no anything.

I got a more accurate description of the sound in park. It'* like the air pump in the back only its coming from the engine compartment and sounds a little deeper.
